In a male-dominated industry, it’s more important than ever to make sure we’re listening to female voices in music, especially on the rock scene. Women in rock are constantly using their platform and voices to help others, whether it’s fellow women on the scene, people in unhealthy relationships, or anyone feeling down about the state of the world. Let’s take a look at some of our favorites that you should add to your playlist!
The Venomous Pinks
Lead by vocalist Drea Doll, this all-female trio from Arizona are never afraid to speak their minds on top of a killer guitar riff and an equally energetic beat. Their latest single, “No Rules,” is all about the toxic relationships we all find ourselves in at some point, whether it’s romantic, platonic, or familial. They break free of the chains the connection shackles them in and the results are not only awe-inspiring, but empowering. We’re sure there’s plenty more fire like this track on their upcoming album, so be sure to presave Vita Mors here and connect with the band on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and their website!
You’ve got one life. One chance. Always do your best. Stand for what you believe in. You’re much stronger than you think. When you really want it, you are unstoppable. Hold on to what your heart speaks.The Venomous Pinks
The Vakili Band
Lily Vakili is, simply put, a powerhouse. And when you factor in an equally-talented band, her prowess is only brought to life even more! The Vakili Band have been making waves thanks to their powerful bond as a group, bold lyrics that offer fresh perspectives on universal feelings, and the standout, brass-tinged sound they’ve honed in on. Their recent track “Father’s Son” showcases everything unique they have up their sleeves, giving us everything from drama to whimsy within four minutes. Get to know the Vakili Band on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and their official site!
My lyrics are a poem with references and nods to what it is to be an outsider, loner, non-conformist – an artist, a son, a woman, a person that doesn’t accept easy categorization. That feeling [of feeling cast out] is maddening, alienating, lonely… until you find your people and your place in the world.Lily Vakili
Lots of women in rock have said spending time with other female rockers feels like a sisterhood, but The Warning take it to another level as literal sisters. They debuted their latest single, “MONEY,” at a show supporting Foo Fighters in Mexico earlier this month, and with a single listen, it’ll be obvious why they got that honor. “MONEY” is a thrilling statement on the state of society and the human experience, and it becomes even more impressive when you realize the members are only 17, 20, and 22. Keep an eye on The Warning by following them on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, and their website!
The song aims to shine a light on the darkness surrounding widespread corruption and greed, as well as the crippling effects it can have on society. When we allow power and profit to take control over our lives, our natural human tendencies, like feeling empathy and compassion for one another, become lost and forgotten.The Warning
